PAGE TEN BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, MAY 14, 1942 ,. Publishers Offer Spring Tonic Of War, Novels and Mystery : Some light on the Russo-Japanese puzzle in the Par Bast is provided by veteran Soviet chronicler Maurice Hindus in his new book, "Russia and Japan". (Doubleday, Doran: $2.) In it he flatly predicts that war between the two countries is as inevitable as was the Russian-German, conflict. Drawing parallels between the Soviet-Nazi situation in 1939-40 and -the present Russo-Jap position, Hindus points out that both Germany and Japan made pacts with Russia for the sake of temporary advantage in promoting a long range purpose. To attain her imperialistic ends, Japan must drive Russia from the Far East, and can only settle her multitude of conflicts with the Soviet nation —cbcncniic, geographic, social and ideological—with warfare. Hindus, who accurately predicted the German attack on Russia, indicates that the ' forthcoming Russo-Jap war has really been in -progress off and on • for the past several years when some 2400 to 3000 clashes took place between land and air forces of the two nations on the Siberia-Manchukuo border. His analysis of the factors breeding renewed warfare in the rrpthern Orient provide excellent background for the headlines of CHICKASAW Weft Main Ne»r 21st Si.

Wiley producing a -fast-moving, slickly written novel of the contemporary scene in "Keeper of the Flame" (Random House: $2), and close as the plot runs to current affairs, it is good escape reading. The story involves a foreign cor- respondenq whose honesty gets him kicked out of Europe into love and into revealing unpleasant facts about a prominent American politician, In "Children of Abraham" (Putman: $2.50), American readers get their first opportunity to judge the short stories of Sholem Asch, famed novelist. The 28 stories here are full of warmth and sympathy and to read them is to be rewarded. Nina Fedorova now follows her well-received "The Family" with "The Children" (Little, Brown: $2.50), in which some characters from the first book reappear, their •charm and their hopes undimmed. The Russian refugees are still in China as the harried family tries to maintain itself in the face of Japanese aggression. Miss Fedorova writes as well as ever, and her now novel exceeds her other in many qualities. * + * Midnight in the morgue would be as tame as Aunt Dinahs quilting party compared with these two collections: "The Midnight Reader" (Holt: $2.75) and "The Three "tar Mystery Book" (Harper: $2.50).

(UP)—The student activities committee at Olivet College was curious about how the average college man spends his time each week, so a couple of members got out pencil, paper, graphs and allied paraphernalia and went to work. The result: they found that he sleeps 55 hours a week, studies 23 hours, eats 21 hours, attends classes 15 hours, listens to the radio eight hours, reads six hours, gives four hours to athletics, plays cards 3'- hours, dances 2'i: hours, writes letters one-half hour—and spends the other 24 hours attending "bull sessions" or doing nothing. BY RUTH MILLETT She wouldn't, want her name used and, if it were, it would only be a name. You wouldn't know her. For she is just Mrs. Somebody who lives in one of the thousands of American small towns built around a square, and the democratic small town way of life. In one of her lace-curtained front room windows is a service flag—for she has one son already in the service. Another son will be in Soon. Bill, the boy who's in, is the older child and therefore has a special place in his mother's heart) (If the use of a hackneyed phrase will be forgiven). His mother cried when he left home, as mothers have ajlways cried when their sons went off to war—and always will. But in a few minutes she started thinking of his clad, instead of Bill or of herself, and she wiped away the tears and made up her mind there would be no more of them. Her home had always been happy—and it was going to be happy still. Seeing to that was her job. FAMILY TALKS PROUDLY OF "OUR BILL" So nothing much is changed around Bill's home. Bill's family members stil have their' fun, tfieir family jokes, their amusements. They talk about Bill a lot—but it is proud talk. He's doing fine in the army and that's something to make a family proud of a boy. He is proving that he can get along in a man's world, can carry his load in a hard, dangerous, undertaking, can subordinate his private plans, his private ambitions, to his country's need. His mother is glad for that— glad that the little boy she scrubbed and spanked, and later sacrificed for to educate, is a man of whom she can be proud. Until he comes home there will be fear and loneliness for her— but both will be well hidden— even from her family. That's part of the job of being a mother in wartime and .she, like thousands of other mothers, will do it well. She's the one you think of on Mother's Day—the one whose home HOW ANGOTT GOT THERE NEW YORK — Sammy Angolt took the N. B.
